On Dec. 28, 1988, the UAA men's basketball team shocked the college basketball world by upsetting the No. 2-ranked and eventual NCAA champion Michigan Wolverines, 70-66, at a tournament in Utah. Just a few weeks shy of its 25th anniversary, the game earned further acclaim with its entry into the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame as the moment category inductee for the 2014 class.
